All Metal MS introduces its “Pitch Adjustment Tool” or PAT as it will be known. PAT is All Metal’s innovative approach to providing a solution that replaces the commonly used Trammel Tool and minimizes the time it takes to complete a track and balance.
PAT attaches to the Pitch Control Link (PCL) and can be set at a nominal measurement to adjust a new PCL, or can center older rod ends to achieve a 1 to 1 ratio to match original dimensions of the worn PCL. By centering the rod ends, you are able to virtually eliminate the redundant process of setting and testing the new PCL until you’ve achieved a perfect match. This saves tremendous man hours and test flight hours, thereby, saving time, money and energy when completing a track and balance for the aircraft. All Metal MS says the tool has been tested by the US. Marine Corp. on the UH-1Y for almost a year and the reviews have been astonishing.
Johnny Buscema, All Metal’s president & CEO states, “PAT was designed to affect cost savings for operators as well as MRO facilities while dramatically decreasing liability. Our mission… “Customized For Efficiency… Built For Safety” is always the catalyst behind our team’s commitment to building our products from a user’s perspective. I believe we’ve hit a homerun with this product.”
